Animation is the UK's favourite film genre

25 July 2014 6:51 AM, PDT

Animation has become the UK's favourite film genre for the first time.

British Film Institute figures show that animated films accounted for 20% of box office takings in 2013.

They accounted for £247 million in sales - £100 million more than in 2012.

The success of films including Despicable Me 2, Disney's Frozen, Monsters University and The Croods account for animation's domination.

The genre outstripped comedy, despite only 33 animations released last year compared to 153 comedy movies.

"Part of the recent success of animated films is that they are becoming more sophisticated and appealing to a broader audience," said Oliver Hyatt, the chairman of Animation UK.

"There is no longer the feeling that they are just for a young audience and adults don't feel strange going to see them any more.

"I would say that within the film industry, animation has been playing catch-up for years but the medium is maturing quite fast and there's more of these films, »
